Ident System AB – New version of EVS138 for SME

Ident System AB will during the fourth quarter launch a new version of EVS138 barcode scanner aimed at Small and Medium-sized Enterprises for either fixed or mobile mounting such as forklift for pallet handling.  The scanner is operated by means of a joystick, which in turn, works a read head mounted on a movable unit. The handler then controls the camera that reads the codes accordingly.

The new EVS138 will read all common barcodes and 2D codes. It is based on latest matrix technology and can withstand the tough industrial environments of forklift truck applications, including the shock and vibration stresses. The EVS138 read-head has autofocus capabilities allowing it to read codes between 0,2 m up to 13 m. The technology used in the EVS138 provides extremely good reading capabilities. It has built-in error correction.

Features:

  • Long reading distance (0,2 m up to 13 m depending on code density)
  • Large depth of sharpness range
  • Reads Bar code and 2D codes
  • Built-in laser pointer for aiming
  • Omni-directional reading
  • No external lamp needed

The new EVS138 is currently in final development but read more about the EVS138 series on our product page.

Upgrade to LF-RFID for better performance in paper industry

Tambour identification has in the past mostly been done using Microwave-based systems. That hardware is now getting to a point where it needs to be replaced in order to warrant a safe and trouble-free operation in the mills. Since a few years Ident System AB offers an economic and well-proven replacement system based on LF-RFID instead of the microwave systems.

The system consists of a reader connected to the present Mill Executive System and will keep track of Tambour-ID, orientation and acceptable destinations. The Tambour-ID system easily integrates with various MES e.g. Honeywell Optivision, ABB Automation, Paperline and similar systems.
Ident System AB has in the past years successfully installed well over 30 systems and more are on the way. The customers have greatly appreciated the quick and easy installation and the good performance of the systems.

Ident System AB has put together a short system description of our Tambour-ID solution that can be downloaded from our website here: Link to Tambour-ID pdf.

Ident System AB EVS144 Imager for fork lift mounting

Ident System AB EVS144 Imager is a code scanner developed especially for forklift mounting. The scanner is operated by the forklift driver by means of a joystick, which in turn, works a read head mounted on a movable unit. The driver then controls the camera that reads the codes accordingly. The System is easy to install because of its small dimensions.

EVS144 imager reads barcodes and 2-dimensional codes (2D) it has a reading distance between 0,2 m up to more than 13 m.

Imager series is based on the latest matrix technology and is designed to handle a tough industrial environment. Readers are equipped with auto-focus system and have built-in error correction.

RFID for precision drilling in the airline industry

Project objectives:

We were contracted by a tool manufacturer for the airplane industry to develop an RFID system to be integrated into a new type of portable precision drilling machine.

Project background and description:

The customer serves primarily the global automotive, aerospace, energy, and general industry markets. In most traditional industries precision holes can be successfully drilled with a drill press or CNC machine but because a significant number of aircraft components are too large, too complex or too irregularly shaped to be taken to a machining center, portable precision drill motors must be taken to the plane itself. It is impractical to drill precision holes in a wing, fuselage or engine nacelle any other way. With a wide wide range of hole sizes, the critically close tolerances required of those holes and the divergent materials used in the aerospace manufacturing industry demand that these portable precision drill motors are available with a remarkably broad range of cutter speeds, feed rate combinations, and physical properties that can accommodate virtually any workspace or application.

All of the customers tools in this range are designed to be fixture mounted with torque and thrust counteracted by the fixture, not by the operator. These tools do not rely on the variable strength of manpower to push against a drill, which means they deliver greater accuracy, repeatability and consistency of hole integrity, as well as greatly reduced fatigue and risk of injury to the operator.

When drilling the thousands of precision holes in a wing, a large number of fixture segments are used and in each segment several bushings are mounted. The bushing has a bayonet locking mechanism to allow for a secure and exact positioning of the drill motor. Each bushing is fitted with a small RFID tag. The fact that most of the components to be machined are not only very expensive, but also difficult to machine materials, it is essential to knew that the right tool is used, at the right cutting speed and feed, at each particular instant.

The project solution:

We designed a small RFID reader that could be integrated into the drill motor body. The reader can control two antennas. The drill machine is of a modular design. It has a control unit to, amongst other features; also govern feeds, speeds and coolant supply. Depending on size and type of tool different nose pieces can be attached to the machine. Each of the nose pieces has a small RFID tag installed. One antenna is used to verify that the correct type and size is fitted for the job to be performed.

The second antenna is mounted at the very tip of the nose piece. It is oriented so that when the machine is securely clamped in the drill bushing, the nose antenna and the bushing tag are lined up in front of each other.

When the machine is first set under power, the reader automatically switches to antenna No.1. As soon as the nose piece has been identified and verified to be the correct one, the machine is ready to dock onto a fixture bushing. There the bushing tag ID is read and sent to the machine control unit. There the correct program is loaded and the hole is automatically drilled, using the preset ideal cutting conditions.

The result is an improved hole quality:

  • Diameter tolerance
  • Countersink depth tolerance
  • Hole finish
  • Hole straightness
  • Lack of burrs
  • No delamination in composites
  • No fiber fraying in composites
  • No metallurgical change from excess heat

Reduced cost per hole:

  • Decreased drilling time
  • Reduced number of operations for each finished hole
  • Combined drilling and countersinking into one operation
  • Self clamping attachments minimize hole to hole time

Reduced inventory & capital investment:

  • Portable equipment eliminates expensive and large stationary machines
  • Simultaneous drilling and countersinking reduces total equipment requirements
  • Self clamping significantly reduces fixturing costs
  • Modular designs reduce the number of complete backup units

Improved tool economy:

  • Exact monitoring of tool life
  • Only regrinding when needed
